. and the senate committee just delayed a vote on the president's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel. lawmakers say that they are hoping it would happen tomorrow. but some republicans are asking for more information from the former nebraska senator. he faced some tough questions from fellow republicans at his confirmation hearing last week. they asked him about his record on israel, iran, and other issues. senators now say they hope to vote on his nomination as soon as possible. just in to fox news, the justice department will send lawmakers the classified legal arguments for droning american citizens to death. that's according to an administration official. yesterday, we got a look at the government's guidelines for killing americans in foreign countries. basically officials don't have to take to you court, charge you with anything, give you a lawyer, even notify you. they just have to decide that you are a senior terror leader and an imminent threat to the united states and that it would be too dangerous to try to capture you so then they can kill you. senators from both parties ha
waters lie ahead for some other obama administration cabinet nominees. chuck hagel failed to impress a lot of republicans during his confirmation hearing, who had already harbored doubts with his past controversial statements. his testimony reinforced experience held by some. that he is unprepared for such a vital post. >> i am really deeply concerned about what i saw last week. i think i'm leaning no on this nomination and i will tell you why. it was shocking to me when he was asked about our policy toward iran, that the fundamental -- one of the fundamental threats to our country that he didn't know that our policy was not containment? i moon, that was shocking. >> c.i.a. director nominee john brennan performed better in his confirmation hearing. yet faces criticism for holding the bush and obama administrations to two different ethical standards in the war on terror. the republicans are determined to hold up his nomination for another reason. >> it is absolutely essential that the documents this committee has requested on benghazi be supplied before the confirmation moves forward.

with more extreme behavior like you saw, for example, in the confirmation hearing of chuck hagel would essentially tried to pillory him and turned into a terrorist supporter, just like the council and we heard from earlier, because he questioned the actions, but i think the harm that comes from suppressing the debate over israel and that comes from the steadfast line support for the israeli government by the u.s. has become so obvious, that more and more people are not openly questioning these issues. i think you see in the me a much greater tolerance for entertaining a wider range of yous. i think the internet and shows like yours have shown that by [indiscernible] just a few years ago, these ideas were considered taboo. i think things are headed in the right direction. i think those defending this is indicative of that. years ago it would have been very lonely but now it is much more mainstream position. >> thank you both for being with us, omar barghouti, one of the founding members of bds, non- violent campaign to boycott, divest, sanction israel until it complies with internationa

for why he wants the job. and that's one thing that we really didn't get a sense of from chuck hagel throughout the about three hours of testimony, he really made a passionate case for his love of serving the country, his expertise in this area, and the seriousness with which he would take some of the concerns these senators brought to him. promising more transparency, promising truthfulness when one democrat, in particular, said she has been, quote, jerked around by just about every cia director in her long tenure and time on that specific committee. so he was very persuasive there. when richard talks about the trouble he had with waterboarding, in part, he was really trying to avoid using the word "torture" because it does have a legal implication, and it has such a political implication. that that would have been such a huge headline if he had, in fact, called it torture. so he said pretty much everything around that. he does have the issue of having been part of a time when these things were used in saying, quite plainly, he didn't do anything to try to stop it. nears there's no
